Re: Rotating emergency food stocks

Everything seemed to have 5 to 10p extra on it.Cat food particularly.Interesting times ahead methinks. Loo roll in Sainsbury, gone up from £3.50 to £3.85 in the past three weeks.

Storing Sun Dried Tomatoes

I'm just about to push the button on an order of herbs/spices etc. One of my items is 1kg of sun dried tomatoes. Question - what's the best way to store them and how long will they last? They aren't in oil BTW - they are actually dried!

Thanks peeps.

Thank's... and soya chunks at £5.30 / Kilo.
Not too bad and maybe better when they have their next promo. I just wish I didn't hate their product naming enough to make me want to scream.

Re: What Preps are you doing this week? Part 6.

Only Mozzer's list them and they had none in stock. Online prices are a bit daft. I'd aspire to pay less than a fiver a kilo. I only know of ...
